May 22, Rob rated it liked it Shelves: I really enjoyed this one when I started it. I liked the clean style and the New-England-nostalgia-cum-good-Stephen-King ambiance. I was excited that it was going to be a baseball novel. But it was still well done.
It bogged down at points, but I enjoyed it mostly, and it ended well. The author is a writing teacher, and this felt a little like a Novel But that's still not easy to do, and in the end I enjoyed it's strengths more than I was annoyed by its weaknesses. Jun 16, Barbara Lock rated it it was amazing.
I loved this book. Ernie Hebert has drawn such interesting, authentic, and touching characters, and placed them in situations both strange and familiar, that I felt that rare and elusive feeling: I entered the world of these characters and their memories have become mine. I accepted that some scenes which might have been further developed for the sake of plot were left sp I loved this book. I accepted that some scenes which might have been further developed for the sake of plot were left spare, because this was in character. Even the scenes which might call on one to suspend disbelief are deftly negotiated, and emerged as products of the rich internal life of a character sympathetic to inner voices and past lives imagined or remembered.
